VANCOUVER, British Columbia – Jordan Schroeder scored in a shootout to give the Vancouver Canucks a 2-1 victory over the Blackhawks on Friday night.

Schroeder, who hasn't scored a traditional goal in the regular season, fired a low, hard shot that squeaked through the pads of goalie Corey Crawford.

Alex Edler scored in regulation for the Canucks (4-2-2).

Patrick Kane had the lone goal for the Blackhawks, who lost their second straight in a shootout after starting the season with six victories.

The Hawks controlled overtime, outshooting Vancouver 4-1. The Hawks were also awarded a power play with 1:11 left when Vancouver defenseman Jason Garrison was called for high-sticking. The Hawks, who outshot Vancouver 28-22, were 0 for 5 on the power play.

The Canucks had a 40-second, 5-on-3 power play in the third period, but didn't register a shot on goal.
